  De La Salle Lipa (DLSL) welcomed another partner for Teaching Minds, Touching Hearts and Transforming Lives as it inked the Memorandum of Agreement of the Armed Forces of the Philippines Education Benefit System (AFPEBS) at the LIRD Lounge, Sen. Diokno Hall, July 4.

Honoring the soldiers for their nobility and hardships was one focus of the program. The AFPEBS prepared an audio-visual presentation showcasing the selflessness of the army members and the dreams they have for their departed family.

The scholarship, dubbed as AFPEBS DLSL Educational Benefit Program, provides 100% tuition and other fees discount to qualified dependents of military personnel, apply in the secondary course and in any undergraduate degree program in DLSL, and may be availed by the dependents of combat casualties (killed-in-action/ discharged for disability with CDD rating of 100%), non-combat casualties (deceased/ completely incapacitated) and active military personnel.
